Malta – Northern Region – St. Paul’s Bay – Xemxija Café Lounge
Despite staying for three weeks last year around the corner from this cafe, I never made it inside. So, since we were looking for breakfast, it was a chance to finally see inside.
The cake selection in the cafe, a little more expensive than other similar locations that we’ve been to, but it was all well presented.
The breakfast options weren’t entirely clear as the menus on the tables really only mentioned waffles. It was all clean and tidy inside, but there wasn’t anything tempting for breakfast unfortunately. There were though some motivational messages on the wall for anyone who fancied some morning inspiration. There’s also a seating area outside and this has views over St. Paul’s Bay, albeit with a road between the cafe and the water.
The coffee was reasonably priced, rich in taste and most importantly of all, it came with a little biscuit. What more could anyone want for breakfast? The service was friendly and helpful, so I imagine that this is a good option for lunch or an evening meal. We were the only customers in the cafe during the time that we were there, but the environment was clean and comfortable.
The reviews for this cafe are nearly all positive, although I did note someone didn’t like the place a couple of years ago, but added:
“As I said, at the time I did not complain as I did not want to ruin the eve for my friend, however that is what sites like Tripadvisor are for.”
It isn’t really, sites like TripAdvisor are becoming pointless as restaurants don’t get a chance to deal with problems at the time, or at least in private after the event if they’re alerted to an issue. Anyway, a relaxing start to the day and I’d visit here again if in the area.
